4.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking action 10 Oct 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I feel privileged in that I think I am the first Brit to review this excellent follow up to The Gray Man.
The Gray Man was an absolute blast, real page turning action - relentless from start to finish. It was going to be a challenging one to follow up and here the author takes his character in a slightly different direction - he makes him vulnerable with a dependency on painkillers as a result of injuries from his first adventure.
So it is a weakened Gray Man that accepts a job in the Sudan, actually he accepts two jobs which are in conflict with each-other and both have their challenges. In the first book Court Gentry (the Gray Man) was a killing machine and here we see more personality, character and one or two flaws. It's a brave departure for the author that may disappoint fans of the first book looking for more of the same, but it's the right thing to do to move the character forward and credit readers with the ability to grow with the character.

This story blends high action (including military action) with a very Bourne like character and it is hugely enjoyable. There will be more in this series and we are given a welcome taster at the end of the book. An intelligent and well written thriller that deserves a big audience.

4.0 out of 5 stars A superior thriller that's well worth your time 10 Oct 2010
By Julia Flyte TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is fast paced, high velocity, can't-put-down action at the top of its game.

Court Gentry is a former CIA operative who is now an assassin for hire. He is working for a Russian mafioso, Sidorenko, a man he doesn't like and doesn't trust. Gentry's assignment is to assassinate the Sudanese President, but the CIA offer him amnesty in exchange for kidnapping rather than assassinating the President - a task that seems near impossible. Most of the book is set in the Sudan, a brutally harsh and challenging environment. At one point the author references the military expression "Black Hawk Down" and there are strong elements of that film in parts of this book.

"On Target" follows on from The Gray Man, but it's sufficiently stand alone that you don't need to have read the predecessor. In fact it's a better book: more tightly plotted, more credible and with virtually no let up in action. Gentry makes occasional errors of judgement that add significantly to the tension. As in the first book, he's a highly skilled operative, but one with emotional baggage and flaws.

4.0 out of 5 stars another winner 14 Oct 2010
By Tweedy
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The author owes me most of a weekend. As soon as I got this I thought I would sneak a quick chapter and then get back to the other book I was reading. No chance, I couldn't put the bloody thing down.

Mark Greaney has taken his character Court Gentry and moved him forward from the non stop blast of the first novel. Now we see some flaws in our 'perfect' assassin as he undertakes two missions at the same time with no way to complete them both, so who will he make an enemy of?
Pace, characterisation and some hard core "Blackhawk Down" type action. Not sure what more you could ask for and I eagerly await the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Court Gentry is caught in the middle. 29 Sep 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"On Target" is the second novel in the series featuring ex-CIA operative Court Gentry following 2009's The Gray Man. It isn't necessary for you to have read that story to enjoy this one, but I think you will most definitely want to read that novel also. This story finds Gentry taking on a job for the Russian mob with a boss who seems to find the hunting and killing aspect of what Gentry does fascinating. Even so, Gregor Ivanovic Sidorenko is perfectly willing to sit on the sidelines and wait while Gentry assassinates the President of Sudan, Bakri Abboud. Sidorenko has a client who wants the President dead because that would open up the availability of a natural resource on Sudanese land which is currently being explored by another super power. Gentry is interested in this assignment because of the decades of genocide carried out by Abboud which could now be stopped. Everything is set and ready to go until Gentry is reunited with his old outfit in the CIA. It seems that the United States has plans of their own for President Abboud. Now there is one target but two plans and Gentry is caught in the middle.

Author Mark Greaney has given us a second book which is about 80 pages longer than The Gray Man novel. The author seems to use many of these added pages to give the reader a fuller insight into Court Gentry, the man. Gentry is shown to be far from an invincible super hero, but very definitely a 36 year old man who is beginning to show some wear and tear around the edges. How can one man remain so alone and so hunted from all sides and not begin to have some problems? This story shows Gentry reconnected with men in the CIA that he has worked with before, with a chance to be accepted back into the fold.
